Fast Track Panama: Lifestyle & Opportunity Conference 2018

For decades now, International Living has been sharing information about all that Panama has to offer. Panama is blessed with a warm, healthy climate that fosters some of Central America’s most verdant rainforest. You’ll find a wealth of wildlife in Panama, and well-established expat communities mean that making friends is easy. The country’s airports host services to multiple U.S. cities, making getting there (and back) cheap and easy.

Nowhere else can you enjoy such a comfortable life…with a year-round mild, tropical climate, excellent medical care, fresh, healthy food straight from the farmer’s truck…and a retirement incentive program that truly welcomes expats…

Panama’s Pensionado Program is the most generous and appealing program of special benefits you’ll find anywhere in the world today. Best of all, you don’t need to be of “official” retirement age to qualify.

Just provide documentation of a guaranteed income of $1,000 a month from a government agency (that is, Social Security, disability, armed forces, and the like) or corporation.

As a qualified pensionado in Panama, you’re entitled to: 50% off entertainment—such as movies, theater performances, concerts, and sporting events—anywhere in the country, 25% off at restaurants, 20% off medical consultations, 15% off hospital bills (if no insurance applies), and 10% off prescription medicines, among many other perks.

But there’s a lot more to being a pensionado in Panama than retirement benefits. The country blends modernity with some of the lowest living costs to be found anywhere; expect to pay a fraction of what you would at home for quality real estate and everyday items.

Panama uses the U.S. dollar, saving you the hassle of having to convert currency. It also lets you see just how far your money goes in this Central American haven.

Among the many low-cost benefits of life in Panama is the excellent standard of affordable healthcare to be found in urban areas; the Johns Hopkins-affiliated Punta Pacífica Hospital in Panama City is the most technologically advanced medical center in Latin America.

Panama meets all the criteria on almost anyone’s “perfect overseas lifestyle” checklist:

• Close to the U.S. (just a three-hour flight from Miami).
• Politically stable and business friendly.
• Mild weather, with a climate for everyone, from tropical beaches to temperate mountains.
• Top-quality healthcare.
• No income taxes on foreign-earned income.

When you join us in June for the International Living Fast Track Panama Conference, you’ll hear from all our Panama experts…attorneys, insurance professionals, construction and real estate experts…who can help you better understand the many benefits and options Panama offers.

We’ve invited expats who have bought second homes, retired, or started up a business in Panama. People who, just a short time ago, were in the same position you are in today. They’ll show you how to make your retirement to Panama a reality. See:
